Contemporary Subway Tile Shower Installation

Posted under Bathrooms, Tile Choices by on April 24, 2012

Just a quick post this morning to share a really great twist on a subway tile installation in a shower.

Subway is always a go-to selection, because:
1. it’s really affordable
2. it looks clean
3. it’s timeless
4. it’s super affordable

Since we use, and (shyly admit) overuse this great tile, I was excited to see an inspirational photo, of a timeless classic.


Subway Tile - Mission Stone and Tile



This installation was achieved using subway tile in a vertical soldier joint, with Schluter inserted every 5 widths!

    Hi. I love your blog Maria, and I totally get the simple is better. To be honest, I am almost feeling like subway is dated, maybe I am just tired of talking about it, lol. I was planning that for my kitchen. I used to really dislike the idea of subway tile. I felt it “depressing”. But that is just me, and not that I wanted something “cheery” or busy or artsy or whatever. Perhaps I wish it just had a different name? SILLY, I know. Anyway,, I do see some responses of only putting a backsplash above the cooktop or rangetop .I am installing granite and I do want/need a very simlpe wall space next to it. What IS the “rule” for backslpashes??? And when can the rule be broken?Would love some comments MUST a backsplach even be there? Thank you all so much, I really enjoy learning from all the comments. Thanks Maria for the forum,Mary
